9-1-1 scam alert
Residents in Washington and other states have reported receiving calls claiming that residents must pay a fee to register their house in a 9‑1‑1 database so first responders can locate the home in an emergency. The caller requests names and medical information.
This is a scam. 9-1-1 services are funded through dedicated 9-1-1 excise taxes on telephone bills and by other local government funds. Residents who receive these calls should hang up and report the suspicious call to their local police or the sheriff’s non-emergency phone number.

For more information, call Karen Kuznek-Reese, city clerk, at 681-3428.
